7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak:
I will testify against you, O Israel;
for I am God, your God.
8 I will not reprove you for your sacrifices,
for your burnt offerings are always before me.
9 I will take no bull out of your house,
nor he-goat out of your folds,
10 For all the beasts of the forest are mine,
the cattle upon a thousand hills.
11 I know every bird of the mountains
and the insect of the field is mine.
12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you,
for the whole world is mine and all that fills it.
13 Do you think I eat the flesh of bulls,
or drink the blood of goats?
14 Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving
and fulfil your vows to God Most High.
15 Call upon me in the day of trouble;
I will deliver you and you shall honour me.
